Child Dedications

child dedications_blakeney

 

The biblical basis for dedicating a child is found in 1 Samuel 1:27-28), where a godly woman named Hannah prayed year after year for God to give her a child. He answered her prayers and she gave birth to a son, whom she named Samuel. When Samuel was born, Hannah prayed these words: “ I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the Lord.  For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.”

At Elevation, child dedications are a time for parents, like Hannah, to commit themselves to raising their child God’s way. They are a joint expression of a parent’s desire to raise Godly children and our commitment as a church to empowering parents in that calling.

Child dedications are a powerful time for parents to embrace the responsibility they’ve been given by God and to catch a vision of the impact they can make in their child’s life. We make these events special by encouraging the whole family to get involved, having some fun, offering family pictures, and occasionally making a dad cry. We want this to be an event parents will always remember.

Child dedications also provide us with an opportunity to express our commitment as a church to helping families raise God-honoring kids. And we count it an honor to be entrusted with that incredible privilege.

We invite all families with children ages 0 – 4 years to participate in the dedication. Child dedications are scheduled periodically throughout the year at each Elevation location.

Child Dedication: A Public Commitment

 

The biblical root of child dedication is found in 1 Samuel 1:27-28, where a godly woman named Hannah prayed year after year for God to give her a child. He answered her prayers and she gave birth to a son, whom she named Samuel. When Samuel was born, Hannah prayed these words:

“ I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the Lord.  For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.”

We look forward to sharing in this special time as you make a commitment before God , your church, and your family to lead and spiritually nurture your child so that they will develop a desire to love God and love others.

Thanks for allowing us to partner with you,

Pictures of Tomorrow’s World Changers

At Elevation we always want to provide opportunities for parents to prioritize raising their kids according to God’s plan for their lives.  This past weekend we gave new parents that opportunity through our Child Dedication Celebration. In Deuteronomy 6:5-7 Moses tells the nation of Israel to “Impress [God’s commandments] on the hearts of their children” and we were privileged to partner with new parents in making that commitment.

Each family took the opportunity to pray over their child as they committed to invest spiritually in them.  It’s such and honor to partner with families in raising their kids to not just survive the world but to change the world for Christ.

If you’re a new parent and would like to be part of our next Child Dedications in the Spring of 2012 please email us at ekidz@elevationchurch.org.
